Zinc Gluconate and Zinc Citrate are the active ingredients in Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges®, the #1 recommended zinc cold remedy in health food stores** and the best-selling zinc lozenge.
Unlike other zinc remedies, Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® unique zinc formula does not contain additives that might interfere with the release of zinc ions. Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® formula has been clinically proven to shorten the duration of the common cold by almost half and make symptoms less severe. Short-term oral zinc treatment has been shown to shorten the length of rhinovirus colds when taken at the proper dose by adults, according to prominent physicians. The treatment seems to work when at least 75mg of elemental zinc is taken within the first 24 hours of cold symptoms developing. Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® has also been associated with faster resolution of nasal congestion, nasal drainage, and sore throat, as well as improvement of cough.
New Data shows Zinc lozenges may triple the rate of recovery from the common cold, according to a new meta-analysis of three studies. However, the promising results come with a caveat: the studies looked at doses much higher than are commonly recommended by doctors, and the authors say that not all zinc lozenges on the market are effective. For the new review, published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases, Finnish researchers combined data from three randomized clinical trials, in which about 200 people who had cold symptoms took either zinc lozenges or a placebo. Daily doses of zinc ranged from 80 to 92mg a day—substantially higher than the recommended daily intake in the United States, which is 11mg for men and 8mg for women.
Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® contains 25mg per lozenge! When these studies were analyzed together, results showed that 70% of the people taking zinc lozenges recovered from their colds after five days, compared to just 27% of people who took the placebo. After adjusting for several factors, the authors concluded that zinc provided a 3.1-fold increase in improvement. These effects were seen regardless of age, gender, race, smoking status or presence of allergies, the researchers note, suggesting that zinc’s healing powers could apply to a wide variety of people. Taking zinc lozenges regularly gives your immune system an invigorating push so you can maintain your health and wellness year round and live uninterrupted from seasonal ailments.
Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® are a must have in this atmosphere of cold and viruses running rampant. Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® are good tasting orange flavored and preferred by almost everyone who had tried other brands of Zinc lozenges. Try Hi-Tech’s Zinc Lozenges® and help shorten the duration and severity of your cold.
